Copy Goods Issue to Goods Receipt
Inventory transactions are not necessarily “one-way-ticket” – Items might be borrowed for demonstration purposes and returned after a while, transferred from one location to another, and so on. For such cases, where items are issued and returned (or received in a different warehouse) in a later date SAP Business One enables you to keep accurate and transparent documentation by copying the Goods Issue to Goods Receipt:
Alternatively, you can choose the “Copy From” button in the Goods Receipt document and draw the relevant Goods Issue.
Available in SAP Business One 9.3, version for SAP HANA and SAP Business One 9.3. This tip and all the other tips are available on the Tip of the week community page. You can also visit the Implementation Arena for useful implementation tips.
Dear Maya Shiff,
Thanks for sharing the details.
This feature will be used as an other way of making Inventory Transfer and is more helpful for the databases which has 'Branch' enabled where SAP prevents Inter branch Transfer.
But when we make a copy to / copy from, the warehouse is also getting copied which should not be the case in this scenario, as because Goods Issue - Goods Receipt cannot be logically done for the same warehouse.
Since warehouse is copied, the inventory movement is also getting reversed.
Appreciate your response. Kindly advice.
